These words, ‘Responsibility, Shame, Victim and Safe’ have been surfacing and making their way into my awareness over the last month or so in conversations and in blogs I have been reading. They are the thin and thick veils of a truth rising to the surface, the anchors stopping and sometimes paralyzing us to choose something different for ourselves.
It began with the word ‘Safe’ and the whole new meaning it might have inside of us…to lock away. Then I began to notice the instances where I felt guilt for thinking something or shame for being who I am. My reaction is one of two, defend and protect, or descend deeper into the vault. I recorded an audio blog entitled The Meaning of the word ‘Safe’ so that I could hear the vibration of my words to shift my inner landscape.
Then a friend posted two amazing blogs on ‘Responsibility‘ and they hit close to home on how much I my life I have been the responsible one…the good girl, making sure all the I’s were dotted and the T’s crossed.
